    Dear,

    One of my main dreams within this platform would be to be able to validate the data in a drop-down menu with connected data from another form. 

    I see that with the new Tables functionality it is possible to associate a column with the data from another form. With this new technology, it is possible to carry out this work within a form?

    Is there a widget that does this?

    I'm referring to the Form View view. A way that allows the options of a drop-down menu to be connected with the data from another column of another form. Exactly how it works in Tables mode (Connection to other forms).

    Hello! As far as I understand your requirement; you're looking for a way to automatically set user provided values of a particular field from one form as options for a dropdown field of another form (like it is happening for the Tables view's connection column).

    I've escalated this as a feature request to the concerned team. If and when this gets implemented, we'll let you know via an email under this thread.

    If you wish to add something to this feature request, let us know and we'll do the needful.

    Thank you!
